Melanie and I have been camped in Assateague Island National Seashore campgrounds for going on three days now.
Assateague Island, famed for its wild horses, lies off the Delmarva Peninsula on the Atlantic Coast. This barrier island is a constantly shifting ribbon of sand, altered daily by powerful wind and waves. The Assateague Island National Seashore, Assateague State Park, and the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge each manage and protect this unique, diverse strip of land. (U.S. National Park Service)
The first night we spent in the "A" Loop of the Bayside Campground, the past two nights have been in #2 Loop of the Oceanside Campground. It's relatively quiet here in late August. I suspect the next few days, however, will be busy with the Labor Day holiday approaching.
Campgrounds here are dry camping. No electric, no water at the campsites and each loop has two outside cold water showers and two pit toilets. It's not exactly primitive, but closer to it than some places we've camped. Beachside Campground loops are steps from the Atlantic Ocean.
There's a place to get potable water and there's a dump station available too.
We've lucked out on weather while we've been here. Skies have been mostly to partly cloudy, high temps in the mid 70's, low's in the low 70's upper 60's.
We'll definitely be back.
Steven and Melanie
